San Diego police slapped a cell phone camera out of a man's hands Saturday, claiming it could be a weapon, before pouncing on him and handcuffing him, lacerating his chin in the process.
Adam Pringle ended up jailed overnight on charges of obstruction because he refused to hand the phone over when the cop ordered him to do so.
But it's already been established by numerous court cases as well as the U.S. Department of Justice that police do not have the right to take your camera unless it is being used in a commission of a crime.
In this case, Pringle's only crime was smoking a cigarette on a Mission Beach boardwalk, a violation for which he was already getting cited.
